All-Island Business Monitor

The largest and most comprehensive business survey on the island

InterTradeIreland’s quarterly All-Island Business Monitor (AIBM) is the largest and most comprehensive business survey on the island, covering business owner’s views from both Northern Ireland and Ireland. A robust sample of more than 750 telephone interviews are conducted each quarter from SMEs across a range of sectors. The survey has a lengthy time series of more than 10 years and tracks all-island economic indicators such as sales, employment, business outlook and other specific topical issues on a quarterly basis.


InterTradeIreland’s latest All-Island Business Monitor reveals that the overall trading environment is becoming increasingly competitive. While the topline sentiment shows the number of firms in a stable position is positive this quarter (61 per cent) and seven in ten say they are profitable, the volume of businesses in growth mode has fallen to 29 per cent, from 36 per cent in quarter two
